Went to Ruby Tuesday's for a beer and quick bar food at almost 9 p.m.; bartender was in a bad mood from the start; ordered 2 draft beers which were given to us in warm glasses and who likes lukewarm beer? Asked the bartender about it and was told the glasses had just been washed, didn't offer another beer in... More

One of my colleagues said to try the chicken and I must say it was excellent. Best chicken breast of any of the major chains. Salmon was pretty good too. Bartender was great and service fast. But when sitting in restaurant area service was really slow for only a handful of tables active. I'd go back

I especially enjoy a good lunch at Ruby Tuesday. They have everything from a hamburger that's too awesome just to be called a hamburger to a delicious steak. Great place to eat at lunch (like me) or at dinner.

Good food, reasonable prices. The salad bar is expansive (compared to some restaurant salad bars). The Tilapia was excellent, I chose the salad bar and zucchini and was very satisfied. Not a fan of the biscuits, though. Service was great, our waitress was not only friendly but also provided prompt service.

Very poor service, bunch of young kids with no concept of customer service. Very thugish inner city feel. Off my list to return.

After a long day of travel, we were looking for anything that wasn't fast food. The meal was unexpectedly tasty. The salad bar was well above average and very fresh. We'd go back.

Bartender was too busy talking to make our drinks. Took 10 minutes to get my first mixed drink and they were NOT busy. Sent the wrong draft beer 2 of 3 times. Our waitress was frustrated and I felt sorry for her. We waited 40 minutes for our food and 2 of the 4 orders were not complete. Manager was... More

Filthy conditions, horrible service, mediocre food. Stay away. The place is not understaffed, but very poorly trained. They wander around doing little while customers wait for service. It was the dirty floors and uncleared tables that really made a horrible impression.

We were seated and waited on right away. Our waitress was interactive and entertained our daughter. The salad bar was fresh and cold. Our main dishes were served hot and quick as well.
